I'm delighted to launch the second season of Explore Explain, a long-form video and podcast series about data visualisation design.
For episode six it was a pleasure to welcome Alvin Chang, Senior Data Reporter at The Guardian (US). We had a detailed conversation about the data, editorial, and design story behind a long-form article titled 'We can draw school zones to make classrooms less segregated. This is how well your district does.', that he wrote for Vox, published in 2018.
